Which philosophers are particularly relevant when studying and using â€œnewâ€ technologies? Hereâ€™s my list based on my readings these last few weeks.
Rosi Braidotti, Metamorposes. Towards a materialist way of becoming
Andy Clark and David Chalmers, authors of The Extended Mind. Andy Clark also wrote Natural-Born Cyborgs.
Mark Coeckelbergh, author of New Romantic Cyborgs.
Gilles Deleuze, Felix Guattari, A Thousand Plateaus
Michel Foucault, Surveiller et punir and, regarding the Panopticum, Jeremy Bentham
Donna Haraway, writer of A Cyborg Manifesto.
John Searle about the Chinese Room thought experiment (and commentators on his ideas) This is one of the topics in a Philosophy of Mind course Iâ€™m reading and watching.
Quite some stuff about cyborgs and ‘monsters’ upsetting the classical oppositions human-machine, man-woman, human-animal, real-unreal. It’s a very incomplete and arbitrary list but based on stuff happening in technology, society and culture.
